We are in amazement of Florentino Martinez's carving talents. This wonderful flute-playing ant is a superb example. Created from fossilized ivory, this flute-playing insect has detailed legs, eyes, antennae, a thorax and abdomen. This little ant is creating important music and concentrating through eyes of inlaid turquoise. About 1 3/8" tall, 1/2" wide and 3/4" deep.
